Talk Nation Radio: Carl Gibson on Shutting Down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce


Published May 22, 2013


Carl Gibson is currently engaged in a Green Jobs March from Philadelphia
to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C., as part of a
campaign called ShutTheChamber.org
You can join the march virtually by uploading a photo on their website,
or you can join in reality at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce across from
the White House at 10 a.m. Friday, May 24th.  Gibson is lead organizer
of ShutTheChamber and cofounder of USUncut.  He discusses the damage the
U.S. Chamber does to our political system pushing environmental
destruction, wars, and the plutocratic concentration of wealth.  Gibson
says that small businesses paying dues to local chambers that themselves
have little in common with the U.S. Chamber end up funding assaults on
small businesses, as the local chambers fund the state chambers which
fund the U.S. Chamber -- an institution that also serves to funnel vast
quantities of unaccountable corporate money into politics.
